May Challenge

So… I’ve been busy lately, and even creative, but I haven’t been doing quite as much clay as I want to. Plus there’s all sorts of other things that I want to accomplish. So I’m going to do another challenge during the month of May, but one with much more flexible rules.

I’m not going to do a certain number of pieces. I’m not even going to limit WHAT I do this time around. I’m just going to make progress.

If anyone’s got a good name for it, let me know. So far, it’s either the “May Madness” Challenge, or the “I thought this was supposed to be fun” challenge (suggested by my husband). 😉


  • I will do half an hour of something clay or art related at least 5 days a week.
  • At least 3 of those days need to be creative and making art. The other 2 can go to cleaning the studio, art business, training, etc. As long as it’s constructive.
  • No books or tv on those nights until after I get my art done.
  • I will post my progress regularly – at least 3 times a week.
  • I will have fun.

Sounds like a very reasonable, and still in pursuit of art, challenge. Although I’m not sure you can make a rule about having fun. 😉 Still, in the big picture, I think you will. I too am challenging myself to do a half an hour of art at least once a week. Just to keep that part of my art brain greased and limber. I often find that I think ‘Oh, half an hour, that’s easy, I have time for that’… then find myself still at it an hour or two later, quite enjoyably. And your husband has a dry sense of humor, eh? 😉

Let me know how your own challenge goes. And you’re right about the half hour. I’m hoping for more but it doesn’t sound so daunting that I won’t get started.

And the only hard part about a rule to have fun, is following it. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂
